  • Summary: "Real Time with Bill Maher" is a weekly HBO talk show series hosted by comedian and political satirist Bill Maher. Episodes include an opening political sketch, a monologue, a panel of three well educated celebrities, two guests (live or via satellite), and at the end, "New Rules."The panel members normally represent a wide spectrum of American politics, which results in an interesting discussion and a fair presentation of the current events. While Bill Maher acts as the panel's head, he doesn't hide his ideological viewpoints. He'll end up agreeing with and attacking both sides of the political spectrum.The last segment, "New Rules," is political satire and covers Bill Maher's personal peeves of the week.The fore-runner of this series is the series Politically Incorrect (shown first on Comedy Central and then later on ABC).

    Why would HBO, cable's most innovative network ... think it's a good idea to let Bill Maher bring the skeleton of his canceled ABC show, 'Politically Incorrect,' and stuff it into the tattered corpse of 'Dennis Miller Live'?

    I love sarcasm wrapped in layers of intelligence and truthfulness. Bill Maher is just awesome! This is the kinda guy you would love to smoke one with.
